Untitled Dark Poem #5

Bitter dreams
sawdust
on lips
parched with lies
tumbling
stumbling
attempting
to stay the course
not fall
not fail
for brutal voice rages
hidden
simmering below the surface
a vile monster
ready
bleed you dry
siphon emotions
empty husk
smile
fake as glow in the dark tan
fantasy land
better to survive
better to exist
better to get by
even as the monster
invading heart
invading
slaughtering head
dispersing troops of emotional repair
under fire
gone
hidden…..
Brittle marionette
dance to tunes
grimace with remorse
little girl
hidden deep
seeking only to destroy
all had better watch out
for soon she shall rise
soon she shall ride the winds
soon she shall cause demise.
